We found ourselves wandering through Fisherman's Wharf at about 8pm on a Monday night, quite peckish having just finished the evening Alcatraz tour (thoroughly recommended). We knew we were taking a risk by heading to a restaurant that advertises in the tourist magazine but I was too hungry to quibble.
When we walked into the restaurant, which is huge, we were the only people to be seated in the main dining area (warning #1) though some people were seated in the bar watching Monday night football. The water and bread arrived at our table pretty quickly, but from then on the service was remarkably slow for an emplty restaurant. More groups arrived during our meal, but there were never more than about five tables out of at least 30 that we could see that were occupied. Our waitress was very nice... we just can't work out where she disappeared to for most of the night! The menu didn't provide a huge number of options. I had an 8 oz fillet mignon with garlic potato mash and sauteed spinach ($30) with a glass of sparkling wine ($11) and my husband had the dinner salad ($8). The total bill was about $55 including taxes. The wine took forever to arrive, the meals also seemed slow to arrive (but we were hungry and running out of patience) and we gave up on waiting for the waitress to come back and collect our credit card to pay and gave cash instead. As Australians who aren't used to compulsory tipping, it was a little frustrating to have to leave a tip at all.
